THE THIRD TEXT 1. Seeing then the eternal will is free from the craving, but the craving is not free from the will (for the will rules over the craving), we recognize the will as the eternal Omnipotence. For it has no parallel. The craving is indeed a movement of attraction or desire, but without understanding ; it has a life, but without knowledge. 2. Now the will governs the life of the craving, and doth therewith what it will. And though it doth somewhat, yet this is not known tUl the same reveals itself through the will, so that it becomes an entity in the life of the will; then it is known what the will has wrought. 8. We recognize, therefore, the eternal Will- spirit as God, and the moving life of the craving as Nature. For there is nothing prior, and either is without beginning, and each is a cause of the other, and an eternal bond. 4. Thus the Will-spirit is an eternal knowing of the unground, and the life of the craving an eternal being [body] of the will.
